Salted Toffee-Chocolate Squares

Salty, chocolate, nutty goodness (and so easy to make)!


Salted Toffee-Chocolate Squares

52 Keebler Club Crackers (about a 1/2 a package)
1 bag (8 ounces) toffee bits
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped toasted natural almonds
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon coarse salt

Preheat oven to 350.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.  Place club crackers in a single layer on sheet, edges touching.  Sprinkle toffee bits and almonds over crackers.

In a small saucepan, bring sugar, butter and salt to a boil over medium-high heat.  Reduce heat and cook at a rapid simmer, swirling pan occasionally, until mixture is syrupy, 2 minutes.  Immediately pour over crackers.  Bake until sugar topping is bubbling, 12 minutes.  Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle chocolate chips and salt over crackers.  Let cool on a baking sheet on a wire rack.  Using a sharp knife cut into 2-inch squares.

*I think coconut would be an amazing addition to these toffee squares (next time).

*These are really yummy frozen.

    1. Club crackers are made by Keebler. They are a flaky, buttery cracker with a hint of salt. The original recipe called for graham crackers, but I like salty and sweet and so I switched out graham crackers for the club crackers. Hope that helps!
